Get Ready... Shooting off Fireworks legal in Lander for 8 hours today

There are two days in Lander when shooting off fireworks is legal. Today is one of those days. The other day, of course, it July 4th. But, there's a limit. Fireworks are allowed only between the hours of 4:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. The allowance of using fireworks on New Years Eve came about two years ago when a serious drought cancelled the city's annual July 4th celebration and prohibition of private fireworks. At the time, it was decided New Years Eve would be an appropriate day for townfolk to enjoy their fireworks when drought would not be an issue. As in the July 4th allowance, persons using fireworks are urged to use caution. #county10 #news
